Today we live in the world of social media which is basically the part of so-called emerging Digital world. People are using digital media for everything. In recent years, we have seen various innovations in online banking domain & NCPI's IMPS or Immediate Money Transfer is one the most popular innovation last year.

I have been using Airtel postpaid services, 2 DTH connections & Airtel landline since long time. I am completely satisfied with the services, but earlier the only challenge I was facing was  the bill payments of all services. I have to pay all bills separately by logging into all accounts one by one  or by visiting the airtel store, But after the launch of  " My Airtel App" I can easily track & pay my bills on a single window, that too with some surprising offers & coupons from popular brands like Flipkart, Amazon, Myntra, Ebay, PVR  etc.

One can easily manage all services & raise all complaints & request by a single touch with 24/7 customer care.
 Out of all these amazing features, the 3 key feature that best suit my lifestyle are:

1) Airtel Surprises - This is the most tempting feature of this App, as it allow the customer to choose from the variety of free coupon on each and every transaction related to billing, payment or recharge.You can easily redeem these coupons with popular brands & online stores as mentioned above. Now I am using these coupons for my online shoppings.

2)Bill Tracking & Payments- This is one of the most important features for me as I use almost all the services from Airtel, it provides a safe & secure way of paying all my bills.I can also store my card details for faster checkouts & trust all information 7 transactions are  encrypted & PCIDSS certified. Hence, You need not to worry about the security of card details. you can also track your bills instantly by using this features.

3) Shake for Exclusive Offers: you must have seen the new TV commercial of airtel on this feature, I loved the TV Ad as well as the feature. You simply need to shake your mobile phone  & you will find various best deals especially for you. Offers ranging from Free data, cash back offer, full Talktime etc.

Airtel has done a wonderful job & taken a giant leap by reconstructing their mobile App. Overall it's a good update & currently available for Android users.
